Hopefully you FBIL won't have to be deployed. Those are so many brooches! I have never seen a bouquet like that very original.
I've been trying to see what flowers I like for bouquets and centerpieces. My hotel ( Azul Beach) lets you pick from a website but I haven't seen anything I loved. I love hydrangeas and peonies but they don't do so well in the heat. So I may just do roses. My BM dresses are actually that purple rose you have in the pic. Don't know if I want to do something muted and classica or bright and fun. Decisions decisions =)
